Bob Harras wants no stable relationships

A few weeks ago at the NYCC, the former Marvel and now DC editor added another head-shaker to the DC staff's list of unfunny jokes, along with the announcements by Dan DiDio that the cast of characters can't get married:
Q: Is it true that no characters in the New 52 can get married now?

Bob Harras: the New 52, we want surprises. We want things to happen that may be unexpected with romances, relationships. What we ask in general is that we don't want any of our characters rushing into stable relationships. The only character we have married is Buddy Baker, Animal Man, and that was part and parcel of the character.
Harras doesn't say much compared to DiDio as a company representative. But when he does, he certainly knows how to turn people off, much like he did the Marvel audience with the crossovers he published, such as Age of Apocalypse. Obviously, an excuse not to work on character drama, proving their disinterest in building real stories.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
